Taking smartphone style and adding a whole lot of substance, the Samsung Galaxy J3 (2017) is sleek and simple in appearance, but with a whole host of benefits inside.
Its main features are its 13MP rear camera and 2GB RAM, meaning it has the power to back up the handy features, so your day-to-day won't be held back.
This model is also a great multitasker - you can make the most of Samsung's dual messenger functionality, so you can log in to various platforms with two different accounts - that's great news for those who need to check both their work and personal accounts on the go.
This Android phone is great for those who like to stay connected and keep a check on things on the go, but won't find a use for the latest technological features on their smartphone.
The Galaxy J3 is lightweight and sits nicely in the palm of your hand, all without being bulky or compromising on screen size - plus the camera sits flush against the back of the phone. Its screen is also 5 inches, which is slightly larger than, for example, the iPhone SE.
With this model, as with many other Samsung models, you can also make the most of the option to add additional storage - up to 256GB in fact - which is great news if you like to have all your files stored locally.
Yet another great feature about this model is its camera. It doesn't stick out from the back of the phone at all, and features 13MP. It's also great in low light conditions thanks to its f/1.9 lens.
The front camera features its own flash too, so you can take perfectly-lit selfies, and even take a photo with a simple hand gesture rather than tapping the screen.
Switching to this phone.
If you're already up and running with an Android phone, switching to the Galaxy J3 is simple. Make sure everything is backed up to your account, then just sign in using your Android information on your new device, and away you go.
If you're moving over to Android from Apple, you'll need to make sure you back everything up from your iPhone to Google Drive. Once you've done this, you can download Google Drive on your new phone and sign in to see all your files in one place.
Switching from a Windows phone should also be doable in the same way as switching from Apple. You should also be able to find the majority of the apps you currently use available for Android too.
If you're looking for something with a little more technological panache, you might like to consider the Samsung Galaxy S8 or even the S9. With some of the latest features going and hugely impressive screen quality to make the most of, you're sure to find these models somewhat outstanding.
However, if you like the sound of the J3, but could use a slightly larger screen, and maybe a higher spec front-facing camera, the Samsung Galaxy J5 is a great choice. It has a 5.2-inch screen and two 13MP cameras.
Take a look at the range of Samsung models we offer here at iD Mobiles, and don't hesitate to get in touch if you need any help choosing your new smartphone.
The charges you pay will adjust (up or down) in line with changes to the Retail Price Index Rate (RPI Rate) set by the Office of National Statistics. We will adjust charges with effect in your April bill after the RPI Rate is announced for the previous 12 months to February. We will publish the RPI Rate on our website as soon as it becomes available.
Roll over unused monthly data to the next month, giving you a second chance to use it.
Put a capped limit on your out-of-plan charges. So even if you go over any of your monthly allowances, you'll never get shocked with a hefty bill.
Roam like you're at home across the EU and EEA. Any minutes, texts and data you use come out of your monthly allowance.
4G for free.
4G is the next step up from 3G, giving you mobile internet speeds up to five times faster than before. In fact, even the
average home broadband speed can't match 4G. That means you can stream movies in HD without buffering, play online games
in real time and upload photos to Facebook instantly.
The 4G network we use already covers huge parts of the country and by the end of the year we're aiming to cover 98% of
the population, so you'll be able to experience faster internet almost anywhere.
If you do find yourself somewhere that we haven't brought 4G to yet, don't worry, you'll still have access to our
Advanced 3G service, the fastest 3G connection in the UK.
Our network uses the fastest version of 3G ever. Known as Advanced 3G, it gives impressive speeds that'll let you
download your favourite movies in a matter of minutes, and make smooth, HD video calls over Skype or Facetime.
The great thing about Advanced 3G is that it already covers 98% of the population. So wherever you go with your iD plan,
you'll get fast and reliable internet.

mobile numbers and landlines.
Calls to foreign numbers (even when you're in the same country) aren't included.

These will be available to buy through the iD App and My Account. You'll be able to use them to call and text UK numbers,

Save some serious cash with refurbished phones.
Pocket the difference with a refurbished deal.
We all know the main benefit of choosing a refurbished smartphone is to save some cash. You can expect cheaper
monthly line rental, or less to pay up front, and get the latest tech in your pocket without the usual
You might be wary of ordering a refurbished phone, but there's no need to worry. Our stock is provided directly
from mobile manufacturers, who have expertly inspected the goods to ensure they're in top working order. This
gives you peace of mind, as well as great savings.
As well as being kind on your wallet, ordering a refurbished phone is also great news for the environment. With
components being re-used, this means less of an environmental footprint than a newly-manufactured phone.
Does refurbished mean these phones were faulty?
Most refurbished stock is due to change-of-mind returns, where a customer has sent the phone back during their
cooling off period. Returned items cannot be sold as new, so we offer these as refurbs. Occasionally of course,
handsets may be returned to us due to a slight manufacturer's fault. In these cases the phones will be repaired
in-house by our approved technicians, then inspected by fully qualified engineers who carry out extensive checks
and tests until all faults are fixed.
If a handset is returned due to a fault, it will only be sold as a refurbished once the engineers are satisfied
that any issues have been fully repaired. We have the highest grading process on the market, as we ensure that
all refurbished stock is Grade-A rated. This means that the item is "good as new", and we don't offer handsets
for sale that are rated any lower. This gives you peace of mind that your refurbished smartphone will reach you
in immaculate working condition.
Are refurbished phones still covered by warranty?
Yes, they're subject to the same warranty as brand new handsets. As with our new handsets, all refurbished phones
are covered by a 12 month warranty. In fact, if your phone should develop a manufacturer's fault within the
first month of ownership, we'll send a courier to your home to pick up the phone, and get this exchanged in our
warehouse right away, so you don't have to wait ages without a working phone.
Outside of the first month, you're covered by free repairs at your local Carphone Warehouse store, should the
phone develop a fault during the first year. As well as the one-year retailer's warranty provided by us, most
handsets are also covered by a manufacturer's warranty too. This differs depending on the manufacturer, so you
may wish to check this at the point of sale. The warranty offered by us doesn't affect the manufacturer's, with
most mobile brands offering 12 or 24 months alongside our own. So even if your refurbished phone develops a
fault somewhere down the line, you get the same level of cover as you do with a brand new device.
Do I still get everything that comes in the box?
Due to the nature of refurbished mobile phones, the original accessories can't be guaranteed. As the item may
have been handled already, we don't include accessories such as earphones for hygiene reasons. However, it's
worth remembering that the amount of cash you're saving on a refurbished phone is a lot more than the value of a
pair of headphones, so even if you pick up an accessory or two separately, you'll still be in pocket in the long
The handset may also come in plain white packaging (although sometimes it'll be delivered in the original box,
depending on its condition). In all cases, you can be guaranteed to receive a charger, so you won't lose any
time in getting your handset juiced up and ready to go.
Do you offer refurbished iPhones?
Yes we do. Ordering a refurbished iPhone is a great way to grab yourself the latest iPhone tech on a budget. Just
be aware that refurbished iPhones tend to be locked to the network you've ordered, so you wouldn't be able to
use it with a different SIM if that was your plan. Other than that, you get the same great phone and warranty as
you would with a new iPhone, so take a look at the full range offered.
As one of the market leaders in smartphone technology, iPhones have never been the cheapest option. However, with
a refurbished iPhone deal you can get the latest models without the usual price-tag. With a refurbished iPhone
6s, you'll enjoy Apple's most advanced iPhone to date, while a refurbished iPhone SE offers similar features in
a smaller, cheaper design. Even less recent handsets, such as a refurbished iPhone 5s, would still deliver
awesome specs at a price to suit.
Why not browse our range of refurbished iPhone deals?
Refurbished VS New
When sat side-by-side, there's not much that would separate a cheap refurbished phone from a new phone.
Other than a cheaper price-tag and a non-branded box, you still get a fully working handset, full
warranty, the excitement of receiving a great bit of tech, and complete peace of mind.
New phones arrive in their original box, with all accessories included. However, they're listed at our
regular prices, so you don't get the extra savings. You're covered by a warranty to protect against
manufacturer faults, which is included when you buy refurbished phones too.
How can I pay my bill?
The best way to pay your bill is via Direct Debit - it's our preferred payment method. Paying by Direct Debit means you don't
have to remember to make a payment every month and so avoid any issues with late payments. You can set up or amend your
Direct Debit details using the iD Mobile App or by logging in to My Account.
We also accept one-off card payments in emergencies. You can make an emergency card payment using one of the following
Pay with the iD app. Navigate to My Billing and click on 'Make a payment'. Download it for free if
you haven't already done so.
Pay online with My Account. Navigate to My Billing and click on 'Make a payment'. To do this, register at
my.idmobile.co.uk if you haven't already done so.
Pay by phone. Call our dedicated payment line on 0333 003 0001.
Data Rollover is a free feature on all iD plans. It automatically rolls over your unused data allowance to the
next month, giving you a second chance to use it.
Capping is a free feature on all iD Mobile plans. It puts a cap (limit) on your monthly spend. So even if you use
up an allowance and get charged at our out-of-plan rates, you won't pay more than you can afford.
All iD Mobile plans come with inclusive EU roaming. This feature lets you use your monthly allowance of minutes,
texts and data when you're in 50 destination.
